Question: I joined a gym in September. I guess I am pretty – blond, thin and a C cup. But that is my problem, I just want to workout and I not get treated like a piece of meat. Guys are constantly checking me out on the treadmill and keep asking me out with one-liners (like I am at a bar!). I signed a two-year contract at the gym and I can't get out of it. Believe me, I tried. Any suggestions for how to get left alone while working out? It is not fair. I almost dread going to the gym. I have talked to girl friends of mine and they have had similar experiences at their gym. Can you give a service announcement to the guys that hit on girls at gyms letting them know that we are there to workout?
Answer: Theres many ways to answer this question, but I will limit my wrath to only two. First of all, you paid a membership fee to workout and not be sexually harassed (by the way – thats what its called, guys, especially at the gym). If you are at a bar, there is an inferred understanding that the girl may want to get picked up, so asking might not hurt. At a gym or health club, it is tacky and can be criminal.
Of course, the friggin' idiot guys out there are going to say something stupid like Well, they shouldnt dress like that at the gym. And I say, You shouldnt be that f**kin stupid." My advice is to write me back with the gym name and number so I can deal with their sexual harassment policies and when a guy comes up to you starring at your breasts or asks you out in some tacky way… embarrass him. I say embarrass the sh** out of him. Tell him something like with an ass like mine, I dont talk to a face like yours."
If you can understand one thing about guys and their human nature, most of them are too stupid for their own good. If they bother you, bother them right back. When I owned gyms in the past, I used to take idiots like youre describing and haul them out back and beat them into a bloody spot, but thats me. Gentlemen, and I use them term loosely, treat women with respect and maybe you wont get your balls cut off. Any questions?
